Some scenes defy easy explanation. Stopped at a red light at Central and Foothill in Upland on Monday morning, I couldn’t help but notice a woman in yellow, pink and lavender, a hat and an umbrella, waiting to cross Central eastward with a rolling piece of luggage and a cutesy Pikachu (from “Pokemon”) backpack.
Perhaps she came from the homeless encampment a few blocks to the southwest. Or maybe she was visiting from Claremont. She certainly was in an unusual location to be rolling luggage, as if she just got off a plane. Does Cable now have passenger service?
I snapped a picture out my car window and, when the light changed, moved along. So did she.
